Veronika Kosikova with Julka Sykorova

This is a picture of me and Julka Sykorova, our househelp. The photo was taken in Zlate Moravce in 1944. I remember the cap I’m wearing in this photo.

Julka was from Male Chyntice, district Zlate Moravce. She helped us in the household and later she gave me shelter. I called her Julka neni. She was like a second mother to me. We were in contact with her long after the war. Julka died in 1980.
